Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, 1st Baronet (28 August 1833 – 17 June 1898) was an English artist and designer closely associated with the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.  He should be recognised as the herald of the Aesthetic Movement and Symbolism.  He collaborated with William Morris and created beautiful stained glass windows.

I thought it was a very slick performance from Mr Read, providing us with a wealth of facts and wonderful illustrations. I was already a fan but the main facts I derived was that Mr Byrne-Jones was very good at feet but produced some dodgy hands!

It was an excellent lecture and gave interesting background to the artist in an imaginative way. Well delivered and presented.

I thought this was an excellent, well presented lecture, however, perhaps, given the limited amount of time available, a little too much time was given to the artists friends and influences.

I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture which widened our knowledge of Burne-Jones and his paintings. I was tempted to think that he was maybe a Victorian version of Jack Vettriano, …….criticised for his lack of formal training and subject matter, but popular with the buying public of that time. Would have liked to hear more about his stained glass art, but maybe that’s another lecture.

Hearing wise this was a treat. I no longer had to concentrate on what was being said to the detriment of just listening to the lecture and viewing the slides
